GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Goose Creek City Council members broke ground on Wednesday at a new activity center.
Officials say the 35,000-square-foot will connect to the existing Community Center via a covered walkway at the City's Municipal Center complex.
It is expected to be completed in 2018.
"The Activity Center represents a major step forward for Goose Creek Recreation," officials said."At the heart of the new facility will be a 10,837-square-foot gymnastics center to replace the aging Casey Community Center."
According to officials, the space will include seating for 300, locker rooms, and state-of-the-art equipment for Goose Creek's popular gymnastics program.
The seating means Goose Creek will be able to host gymnastic meets and many other competitive activities.
"Gymnastics are only part of the building's functions. Other rooms and spaces include two classrooms to be used for a range of activities; a dance, karate and yoga space; an aerobics room; coaches' offices; storage areas and more."
